    • Drones. Which one?
      We don’t talk about drones much here….  I am extremely interested in buying a drone in the very near future. My needs are, a short doc that I am currently in production on, stock footage beginning in the next few months, and MAYBE a feature doc in the next year. 4K seems pretty necessary for the stock footage, not so much the short doc. But I would want 4K for the feature doc if that happened. So which drone? The two models that I have been considering are the X5R + Inspire, or a Matrice whatever. The Matrice has the benefit of using the camera of your choice (within specs) but has the downside of it being large and comparatively time consuming to set up and get going. The Inspire can fly through amazingly tight quarters, is quick to set up and easy to transport, but obviously you’re pretty committed to the camera (X5R), though with future DJI releases this could potentially be upgraded too.  I am definitely leaning toward the Inspire/X5R combo.  For all the reasons I’ve listed, plus, the image is pretty amazing. It’s not as filmic as say a Blackmagic, but with nearly 13 DR and full 4k raw there’s a lot to work with. From what I’ve seen, I would have few problems matching it fairly closely with nearly any image produced by a camera under $10-$15K, and maybe even some of those. Interchangeable lenses is awesome. I love that I can combine the X5R with an Osmo and have sweet little gimbal as well. Battery life on these things are not great. I’d buy a few extras.  Am I missing anything?  Is there another manufacturer I should be looking at instead? Is the Matrice the better option for a reason I’m not considering? This is not a cheap investment, so again, what am I not considering?
    • "Organic" looking lenses
      I am currently on the hunt for some new glass. I am looking for preferably full frame lenses with an organic look. I don't really care for sharpness as long as it can resolve 4K imagery. What are some of your favorite lenses for the organic look ?
    • One Lens?
      @mercer I'll look into that dude, I got my eye on the 85mm f1.2 the 50mm f1.4 and the 28mm f2. Footage from the contax lenses look good ! You used it on a 4k body ?
